coating my savage barrel and receiver installed

What is the best method of getting a barrel and receiver ceracoted? Would it be best to disassemble the barrel/ nut/receiver or could I get by with doing it all assembled? I suppose the only issue I would have if coating it assembled would be being able to remove the nut later for rebarrel. Actually what I am getting is a coating from Polydyne in Houston, but it's similar to ceracote.

paint it up and don't worry about it, tough as that stuff is it can be removed
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
